They should be fairly snug, but not so tight that you cannot bend your toes. If the shoe is too narrow it will feel stiff to the point of discomfort. If it is too wide it may create pressure points where I’d rather have my toes, or cause blisters. Another thing to look for are “rip-stop rubber bumps” on the front and rear of the shoes. These allow an athlete to touch their feet together to make sure they are not having friction issues inside the shoe (primarily bad for blisters).

How Many Crossfit Gyms Are There In The Us?
Overall, there are currently at least 10 crossfit gyms in the USA. All of these gyms have a membership fee and a facility where people can work out. Crossfit was founded by Greg Glassman on the 2nd July 2003. The number of gyms had been growing rapidly as he received more attention from athletes, including celebrities such as tennis player Venus Williams and former NFL player Doug Flutie. In 2004 some sports stores began to join together with some gyms to open up their own “CrossFit boxes” so that each box could offer both personal training and group exercise classes for members (Boxes usually operate on Monday – Saturday).
